I plan to bring most of my food for the two days and may eat supper at the Isle of Capri buffet Sat evening, though the prices have went up a lot since last year. There are coupons in the PJ brochure for buy one get one free I believe.
THINGS TO TAKE - Helmet, sunscreen, 2 to 3 bottles to refill or a camel back, spare inner tube, and a rain jacket. Extra TP, because they tend to run out. Shower items for cleaning the trail dirt off. The YMCA, next to the park, is supposed to have showers til about 10pm. Camping gear like tent and sleeping bag and a change of clothes for the next day.
